chmod to 777 an acceptable security risk?
Please excuse what must be an elementary topic, but…
I just installed WP on GoDaddy. I was just about to purchase and upload a premium theme when I noticed that the install required that I adjust the CHMOD to 777. As far as I can tell, this seems to be a security issue, yet, this seems to be the norm for WP theme installs. Can anyone shed some light here? Is 777 permission acceptable?
